THE NEWS, JUNE 21, 1944
Posthumous Citation is Received by Widow
Mrs. Annabelle (May) Andrews of Pearl, received from General H. H. Arnold a "Citation of Honor" for her husband, Technical Sergeant Charles A.(Sic) Andrews, who gave his life in the performance of his duty on April 20, 1944.

The citation was as follows:
He lived to bear his country's arms. He died to have its honor. He was a soldier,and he knew a soldier's duty. His sacrifice will help to keep aglow the flaming torch that lights our lives, that millions yet unborn may know the priceless joy of liberty. And we who pay him homage, and revere his memory, in solemn pride, rededicate ourselves to a complete fulfillment of the task for which he so gallantly has placed his life upon the altar of man's freedom.

T/Sgt. Andrews was in the Air Corps for nearly three years.

Sgt. Charles W. Andrews spent the past weekend with his wife and son at his home near Pearl. Sgt. Andrews is stationed at Fort Dix, New Jersey.
